Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 3/12-3/18

It’s beginning to feel a lot like South By….evvvverywhere I go!  From last night’s dance with The Wrecks and Dreamers to this morning’s random free drink at The Coffee Bean, I might as well already be in Austin for my favorite time of the year, SXSW Music Week!  My actual trip begins tomorrow.  Per usual, I’ve listened to all the artists, compiled a 20+ page schedule of events, and packed a suitcase full of comfortable walking shoes.  Top artists to see include faves like Frank Turner, SUR, and morgxn, but I’m also looking forward to checking out a ton of new (to me) artists like Sam Fender, Bad Pony, half*alive, and Jade Bird. We shall see which new artist or band meets (or dare I say exceeds) “the Graham Bar”, so named for Lukas Graham the year that band blew everyone else out of the water.

If you’re in LA and also want to discover some great new music, go check out Findlay or Bobi Andonov playing Monday night. And if you just want to see some favorites do NOT miss the AWOLNATION, Nothing But Thieves, Irontom extravaganza coming to The Wiltern for two nights!
